Create Password Locked Folder In Windows 10 - Keep Files Safe!

1457 ratings | 224210 views
How to lock and unlock important files and folders on your Windows 10 device by locking them in a secret/hidden folder. You can place this folder wherever you like on your computer, and you need a password to unlock it. This requires no third party software and is free to setup using features included with Windows. PLEASE NOTE: YouTube does not allow direct upload of small brackets into video descriptions. I had to uppercase two brackets (what looks like a right arrow near the bottom of your keyboard). You need to lowercase the braket (meaning small version of > instead of large one). in the following two locations: 1) immediately after cho= AND 2) pass= .Make sure you do not cut off the "" when you are typing this text in. Code Used In Video (Please see above for special instructions) cls @ECHO OFF title Folder Locker if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK if NOT EXIST Locker goto MDLOCKER :CONFIRM echo Are you sure u want to Lock the folder(Y/N) set/p "cho=>" if %cho%==Y goto LOCK if %cho%==y goto LOCK if %cho%==n goto END if %cho%==N goto END echo Invalid choice. goto CONFIRM :LOCK ren Locker "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" attrib +h +s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" echo Folder locked goto End :UNLOCK echo Enter password to Unlock folder set/p "pass=>" if NOT %pass%==Your-Password-Here goto FAIL attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" Locker echo Folder Unlocked successfully goto End :FAIL echo Invalid password goto end :MDLOCKER md Locker echo Locker created successfully goto End :End This tutorial will apply for computers, laptops, desktops,and tablets running the Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 7 operating systems.Works for all major computer manufactures (Dell, HP, Acer, Asus, Toshiba, Lenovo, Samsung).

People can still open the folder. The batch file gives each computer that accesses it the option to lock it or not. I guess this wasn't created for shared drives but only for kiddos to keep their 'homework' hidden on the family computer
and how to delete the batch file?

It would be funny if this guy puts a video on how to lock em then makes another video on how to get in them 😂

That would be illogical. Or would it? Actually an interesting idea Kevin.

Peace Paradise (28 days ago)
no i'm not talking about me ... i mean if someone else does ... all i want to know that , if there is any way to recover it !
MDTechVideos (28 days ago)
Why would you delete it? It is like asking what happens if you touch a downed electric wire. You don't do it.

saleh hamdi (2 months ago)
great video, but I have a question, will it still be locked even after I format my computer.
saleh hamdi (2 months ago)
the locked folder will be in drive D and the widows is installed on drive C.
MDTechVideos (2 months ago)
Are you referring to this password-locked folder? Which drive is Windows installed on?
saleh hamdi (2 months ago)
I'm only gonna format the C drive and the folder will be in a different drive, will it still be deleted?
MDTechVideos (2 months ago)
The folder will likely be gone at that point.

MDTechVideos (3 months ago)
This point has been addressed many times before. The main reason is why would anyone be looking for something that they had no idea existed? Also most computer users even after that would not be able to figure out how to open it.

Fort Blaster (3 months ago)
yes but what if someone opens the folder and deletes the .bat file or the hole folder
MDTechVideos (3 months ago)
If you properly hide the folder, the odds of a normal person getting in are incredible small. I don't understand why people take such issue with this concept.

lol, these are fucking nonsense. Maybe it was catalysed during Windows XP, but it's not in the next versions of Windows OS, especially at Win 10. If I tag the .BAT file with the script and choose the "Preview Pane" option under the "View" tab, in the right window I will be able to see not only the password but also the entire script. Fucking Bullshit! However, this misunderstanding may be beneficial to the user - so he will never forget his password. : :))
MDTechVideos (4 months ago)
You are missing the point of the video. Nobody is even going to know there is anything special in it. It is a Password-locked folder. If you want to find a way to circumvent it, the same can hold true for just about any security measure.
Rasheduzzaman Rishad (4 months ago)
Unfortunately I delete the locker file... But I can my data are still on the file where the locker file was saved... I be sure that by seeing the properties option. That is empty file but that has 66 GB file size my data was 66 GB too... Is there any way to get back my those data?
Kashi Subedi (1 month ago)
go to view and tick the hidden files . it will show you the file then after save or copy your files to other folder
Rasheduzzaman Rishad (4 months ago)
Yes... I can get those by searching "any search" application... those are hidden... How can I get them out... do you have any Idea ?
MDTechVideos (4 months ago)
The data is still there.

How do I password protect un/installation of software?
Gideon Joe (7 months ago)
one question: if i hide a particular folder, it means that every time i want to open each file inside that particular hidden folder, i must enter password every time; for eg. Word Doc. Xl. PP. FDF. media, etcc...?? or does the password only hide the main folder?
Anmol Singh (7 months ago)
i am facing a problem and after following the steps the folder is not hiding.what is the problem going?
